A Tucson sunset

Uploaded by: ChandlerMike

Tuesday August 14, 2012

Tucson, AZ (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Amazing sky last night in Tucson...one of my best lightning captures to-date. There is a rainbow in there too on the edge of the right bolt, hard to see with the orange color from the sunset :)

Image Description: A lightning bolt strikes in the heart of Tucson during a beautiful monsoon sunset. It's not super easy to make out, but there is a rainbow going into the sky along the right bolt.

Wow Mike! Now THAT is a perfect "10" fave lightning shot from me--even better than my World View shot of lightning and thunderstorms at sunset in Florida this week which was my personal best to date as well!!!!! Congratulations on your World View and for sharing with us--your WU fan club!

With weather getting even one element can be a lucky shot; capturing so many at once you should have run out and bought a lottery ticket, too!!!! Super shot.
